April 2019 Hero:
Jake is a Senior Logistics Coordinator who began his career with Hub Group in 2016 managing LTL from our customers’ warehouses to their retailers. His main focuses include expedited shipments and working with LTL carriers to maintain a high on-time percentage.
Jake graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in Business Administration with an emphasis on Marketing.
“I like that every day at Unyson can present a new opportunity to learn something. Supply chain is such a large industry that is frequently changing presenting new challenges every day.”
“I have learned a tremendous amount in my time at Unyson. The new challenges provided by the customer daily has provided me the ability to look at problems in many ways giving me the ability to problem solve at a higher level.”
“While the account can be complicated, Jake knows the needs and expectations of his account extremely well, even for work outside of his scope. He has taken the lead on projects and calls, and he mentors the rest of his team when they are having issues. The team looks to him as a leader and I look to him as my go-to person, however, he has usually completed the task before I even ask.”
